    The emergence of the networked information economy is unleashing two powerful forces. On one hand, easy access to high-speed networks is empowering individuals. People can now discover and consume information resources and services globally from their homes. Further, new social computing approaches are inviting people to share in the creation and edification of information on the Internet. Empowerment of the individual-or consumerization-is reducing the individual's reliance on traditional brick-and-mortar institutions in favor of new and emerging virtual ones. Second, ubiquitous access to high-speed networks along with network standards, open standards and content, and techniques for virtualizing hardware, software, and services is making it possible to leverage scale economies in unprecedented ways. What appears to be emerging is industrial-scale computing-a standardized infrastructure for delivering computing power, network bandwidth, data storage and protection, and services. Consumerization and industrialization beg the question "Is this the end of the middle?"; that is, what will be the role of "enterprise" IT in the future? Indeed, the bigger question is what will become of all of our intermediating institutions? This volume examines the impact of IT on higher education and on the IT organization in higher education.

In the World of Facebook - The New York Review of Books - 6 views

  •  
    Facebook, the most popular social networking Web site in the world, was founded in a Harvard dorm room in the winter of 2004. Like Microsoft, that other famous technology company started by a Harvard dropout, Facebook was not particularly original. A quarter-century earlier, Bill Gates, asked by IBM to provide the basic programming for its new personal computer, simply bought a program from another company and renamed it. Mark Zuckerberg, the primary founder of Facebook, who dropped out of college six months after starting the site, took most of his ideas from existing social networks such as Friendster and MySpace. But while Microsoft could as easily have originated at MIT or Caltech, it was no accident that Facebook came from Harvard.

The Facebook "video message" spammer worm is making rounds again - 0 views

  •  
    If you received a Facebook message similar to these: ---------- Hey funny. Between You and a Friend Today at Time/Date Is that you making love?!: Long link to video download web site here ... ---------- or ---------- Hi my friend. Between You and a Friend Today at Time/Date Who and when made this video of you?!!!: Long link to video download web site here ... ---------- DELETE it. Do NOT click the link. If you clicked the link, do NOT download the file! If you downloaded, do NOT click/run the file! If your Facebook profile is suddenly sending spam-like messages to all your friends (similar to those above), please read the instructions for removing the Koobface worm. If the worm is a variant of Koobface.A, there may be instructions and antivirus data files (update, dat file, signature, etc.) or a remover application specific to the variant. Don't panic. There is no good reason to format a hard drive to get rid of a virus. Most antivirus software can do a good job of cleaning up. As this thing relies on an internet connection to propagate, please unplug your network cable. Follow the removal instructions for your operating system, and scan your computer with updated antivirus software. I think any one of the popular antivirus applications (and some spyware progams) will take care of it as long as what you're using has the latest virus definitions/signatures/dat file/updates, etc. W32.Koobface.A http://www.symantec.com/norton/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2008-080315-0217-99 Free stuff here that may help: Browser Security Tests: http://www.pcflank.com AVG Anti-Virus Free: http://free.grisoft.com Ad-Aware Spyware Remover: http://www.lavasoft.com/single/trialpay.php Spybot Search & Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/en/

O'Reilly Network -- What Is a Wiki (and How to Use One for Your Projects) - 0 views

  • A wiki is a website where users can add, remove, and edit every page using a web browser. It's so terrifically easy for people to jump in and revise pages that wikis are becoming known as the tool of choice for large, multiple-participant projects. In this Article: Wikis Work for Big Projects Choosing a Wiki Advantages to Using a Wiki Disadvantages to Using a Wiki Using a Wiki Somewhere, in a dimly lit classroom, a library bench, or in a home study, some lucky so-and-so is writing an essay from beginning to end with no notes. This splendid individual is able to craft entire sections without forgetting by the end what the section was intended to include at the beginning, and can weave a carefully paced argument with thoughts and references collected over a period of months, all perfectly recollected. Neither of your authors is this person. Instead, we need help, and that help comes in the shape of a wiki. A wiki is a website where every page can be edited in a web browser, by whomever happens to be reading it. It's so terrifically easy for people to jump in and revise pages that wikis are becoming known as the tool of choice for large, multiple-participant projects. This tutorial is about how to effectively use a wiki to keep notes and share ideas amongst a group of people, and how to organize that wiki to avoid lost thoughts and encourage serendipity.
